It’s National Heart Month

In case you weren’t aware, February is National Heart Month.  NEMO Heart Health has been working hard to Rock the Town Red!  I am sure by now you have seen or ordered (thank you!) the shirts for Rock the Town Red Day Friday February 14th.  And have you seen the RED ribbon tied around the poles downtown?  Why do we want to Rock the Town Red so badly?  To make the community aware of how important heart health is.  We have all been touched by someone with cardiovascular disease so we know how important it is to be healthy with proper nutrition and exercise for overall  prevention of heart disease.  It is our goal to never have to use any of the 100 AED’s NEMO Heart Health has placed around Kirksville and surrounding areas.

We would love to hear why you wear RED.  Send an email to us at to tell us why you wear red.  Whether it’s for your friends, family, or maybe even yourself – we want to know.  You might even see some stories on our blog (on Kirksville Daily Express website) or on our website (with your permission of course).

From everyone at NEMO Heart Health – happy ROCK the Town RED Day – and Happy Valentine’s Day.
